Manage your collection settings
Here we'll cover your options to tailor your collections to your needs.
You can access the settings of your collections by activating the layout editor (1), and clicking on the cog icon next to your collection’s names (2).
As you can see above, the name
PatientStatusisn't editable (1), since it's the technical name of the collection introspected by Forest Admin.
If you wish to change that name, you may use the Display name field. Here we've named our collection Patient (2). Note that the plural form of the display name you specified is automatically managed, however you can control it by configuring it manually (3).
The Icon field allows you to change the icon next to your collection name.
The Reference field field enables you to specify how links to a record of that collection should be displayed. For instance in our Live demo, the Customers collection has its reference field set to fullname, so that it appears as such any time a reference to a record of this collection is displayed:
If no reference field is given,
idis used to display the reference link.
Finally, the Sorting field and Order fields allow you to manage how you want your collection's data to display at page load. In the image above, we've set them to
descendingrespectively, so that going to the Addresses Table View will show your data ordered from most recently updated backward.
As you can see, the column header shows a down arrow which notifies you it is sorted.
